Pinned toot

Greetings Snouts! I'm moving from .social 'cause y'all seem like a good bunch and being on the front-line instance was a little exhausting.

I'm a web dev by day and an enormous Myst nerd by night. I run the Guild of Archivists at guildofarchivists.org and I've contributed art and expertise to the Myst universe's Unwritten RPG.

My primary 'sona is an arctic fox, but I also have a pony (Silvercloud) and an african wild dog (Zami).

Cheers!

Something that irks me about the meta events on recent GW2 maps (like Palawadan & Thunderhead Keep) is the forced reset that effectively locks you out of the area after the event chain ends. Older maps (like Orr) usually have a "Defend X" phase that lets players hold the contested area open. Between the forced resets/evictions and the Fury of the Brandstorm, some areas in PoF and LWS4 are... extremely tedious.

:blobnotlike: blocking ads is evil grr
:blobuwu: HTTP is a pull-based medium. it is within the original philosophy of HTTP to selectively pull the data, for example, a device that doesn't support images won't download them. by circumventing ad "blocking", you are spitting in the face of HTTP. a more accurate term would be ad rejection. ads are not "blocked", they are simply not asked for.

Woo, my Myst 25th Anniversary DVDs arrived today!

So, I know snouts is all about the pooltoy, but have you considered: plush?

(I just got... I'm gonna go with "transferred" to Windows 10 at work, because "upgraded" makes it sounds like there was some sort of improvement being made in the process.)

Nice to see that after 10 tries, the operating system named after the concept of application windows still has no idea where I left them whenever it restarts.

Oops, I guess I jinxed it last night when I remarked on what a comparatively mild winter we’ve had so far.

Well, after a marathon couple of days, I’ve completed everything up to the start of the 15th century DE in the Archive’s new inter-linked historical timeline (so, basically, everything up to when the Book of Ti’ana starts), and am making solid progress on filling out the much-neglected Policies areas.

The timeline starts here: archive.guildofarchivists.org/
